Operatives of the Ogun State police command have arrested 23-year-old Eniola Shittu for allegedly conspiring with her boyfriend, David Peremobowe, aged 31, to rape her close friend (name withheld). According to spokesman of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect, a resident of Ikopa Tuntun Abiola-way, Abeokuta, was nabbed for conspiring with Peremobowe to commit the act.
“The suspects were arrested following a report lodged by the victim at Obantoko Division that she was at home on July 24, at about 1:45p.m. when her friend, Eniola Shittu, sent message to her on WhatsApp that she should help her buy food and ‘skushis’ and bring to her boyfriend’s house at Somorin area of Obantoko, Abeokuta.
“On getting there, the boyfriend, Peremobowe offered her a bottle of beer, which she took but immediately she finished taking the beer, she became very weak as a result of which Peremobowe unlawfully had carnal knowledge of the victim, and while he was doing it, her friend, Shittu used her phone to do the video recording of how she was being raped.
“On the strength of her complaint, the DPO Obantoko Division, SP Olasunkanmi Popoola, detailed detectives to the boy’s house, where Peremobowe and his girlfriend, Shittu were promptly arrested. The Gionee handset with which the video coverage was made was also recovered,” Oyeyemi said.
